Week commencing 17 October

Chris Beauchamp's insight

Earnings season is firmly underway, with US banks and then a variety of other names reporting, including Tesla and IBM. This will be focus for markets for a couple of weeks at least, providing a welcome diversion from the focus on inflation. We do not escape entirely however, since UK consumer price index (CPI) is released on Wednesday.

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
